Peace Clicks and Sounds Too Late Listened For
the San people of South Africa
who speak these words are gone
we hear them calling for peace and justice
only on recordings now
should have listened sooner
to the clicks and sounds
the speakers of !Ora
who said peace "ǂxãĩ-b"
craving "!ae" " to calm or quieten down
or "ǁʔú" at ease or undisturbed
we have silenced them
"!nó" or "!nō" to be quiet or silent
but there is still time for others in the world

Peace and Calmness
Peace and Peaceful
describe a situation
an event that is without turmoil, stress or war
a situation a quiet still lake with birds calling to each other
a land without war planting the land for a future harvest
a country road at dusk in the summer when everyone is home getting ready for a family dinner
deer grazing in a mountain meadow
Calmness is inner peace in the face of conflict
a man standing by a still lake focused on his photography rather than the barking dog
a mother with a toddler having a tantrum knowing it will pass
a speaker excited and confident on their topic
a Qigong master in an urban park with the bustle of traffic all around
"Familiarity helps us feel safe and included but it does not make us more creative and imaginative, being immersed in different cultures and surround by and interacting with people different from ourselves does" [Read more}.

BLOOMFIELD, Conn., Oct. 10 (UPI) -- Chances of surviving a deadly avian flu pandemic would likely increase with hands-on therapy, even without antiviral drugs, a U.S. health newsletter says.
Integrative manual therapy in the area of the spleen and liver, for instance, would help fluid, blood and lymph flow appropriately, significantly boosting people's immune systems and helping them endure the feared pandemic, The Burnham Review said.
The avian H5N1 flu -- spreading from birds to other animals and people in Asia, Europe and Africa -- has claimed at least 245 human lives, the Geneva-based World Health Organization says.
Healthy young adults are at greatest risk, the WHO says.
Epidemiologists are afraid the next time the virus mutates, it could pass from human to human, resulting in a pandemic that could kill 60 percent of the people who catch it.
The precedent that experts fear is the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic, which killed an estimated 100 million people worldwide -- often healthy young adults, The Burnham Review said.
The review said flu patients back then who received manipulative therapy had a 0.25 percent mortality rate, compared to a 6 percent U.S. average.
"The results are striking," Editor Kimberly Burnham told United Press International.
"Some gentle manipulative therapy resulted in a dramatic difference in mortality," said Burnham, who has a doctorate in integrative medicine from Westbrook University.
U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Julie Gerberding calls an avian flu pandemic "the most important (health) threat that we are facing right now."

I am looking for guest blog opportunities and a position as poet-in-residence. My current project is writing dictionary poems using words in different languages for the English word "peace." You can read some of my poems on Poemhunter .
As poet-in-residence I would write poems on different words in different languages and broadcast them throughout the social media blogosphere. Each poem would link back to your site where the word or language appeared.
I would expect some sort of stipend and a six month to one year placement. Please contact me for details if your organization is interested in having a poet-in-residence to help get your message out. Nervewhisperer@gmial.com
